B0429 - Temperature Control #3 Rear Circuit Range/Performance

It means that there is a difference between the commanded and actual positions of the rear air mix door. I've been told that it does not take much to set that DTC. It seems to be rather common. Had it myself. If you are not having any problems controlling rear seat temperatures, clear it and forget it.

B0429 will not set a DTC. You must have another code.

Turn the A/C on and see if both cooling fans are on. If not, you need to get the relay looked into. Probably just need to replace it.
